no run weekend

No runs this weekend and I missed them big time. I was planning on a long trail run sunday mourning with a running group, but the wife said no. She doesn't want me to drive far and be gone for 4 hours. I wanted to run but thought I would run closer to home. I started doing work around the house and never did go for a run. It was really cold out and I didn't want to push it. It is raining and cold again today so I will probably wait til wednesday to run. I am going back to my local 6 mile trail this weekend. I did get some good things done around the house though and I hope I get more done this coming weekend.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get.

blister run

Did a great 4.5 mile run last night that has me feeling really good. I used a new set of insoles and ended up getting a huge blister on the bottom of my right foot for most of the run, but I don't care. Before I set out I had a little bit of hesitation cause my stomach was not right. But I am so happy that I went. Before the run, the big boy and I flew his kite and we had a blast. I post some pics later. The blister is really big though, bigger than a half dollar. There is a trail run on sunday at Kings mountain I want to go to but I'm not sure I could do 16 miles. We'll see.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get!

If I had a marrow donor

I wish I could be a donor.

Great Easter weekend

We had a great Easter weekend and we were able to get lots of stuff done. We were all off on friday so when I woke up I went for a 4 mile run. Loved every second of it. We then worked around the house and I had to get the playset ready for wood waterproofing sealant. Getting the roof and second floor cleaned was very hard work. I never did get a chance to sealing the playset or the fence and now need to do this weekend. I didn't get any workouts or other runs in over the weekend but we were able to spend all day Easter sunday outside and play with all of the neighborhood kids and parents. It was a great time and absolutely beautiful weather. Working on getting back on a consistent running and working out schedule this week. I am planning on getting in another 4 mile run tonight.

I ran!

I have been really itching to get out for a run lately and I'm happy to report that I did run yesterday. The weather has been real nice lately for the most part and I've seen lots of runners out enjoying their runs. I was a little hesitant at first, but once I laced up and headed out the door I was working on holding it back after 2 miles. I did 4 miles total and my legs are hurting a little today, and I love it! I am planning on running again on wednesday if weather permits. The ankle and leg felt good during the run and so good to not have the pain anymore.
